Submission to the Victorian Animal Industries Advisory Committee

In February 2016, the Animal Law Institute, in conjunction with Voiceless: the animal protection institute, provided a submission to the Animal Industries Advisory Committee in relation to proposed reform of the Victorian planning system.

Our submission addressed various considerations set out in the Committee’s discussion paper, covering subjects such as land capability assessments and appropriate areas for intensive agriculture; intensive animal husbandry practices; permits and the right to object; and industry codes of practice.
